HP, which pre-announced relatively happy results a couple of weeks ago when it said it was buying 3Com, came in exactly on target with earnings of $2.4 billion, or 99 cents a share, up 14%, on revenues of $30.8 billion, down 8.4% year-over-year from $33.6 billion. And the company reiterated that it should do $29.6 billion to $29.9 billion this quarter and earn 90 to 92 cents a share. Its full-year outlook is for $118 billion-$119 billion and EPS of $4.25-$4.35. In a statement CEO Mark Hurd, who still finds the economy "challenging" despite signs of recovery and projections of growth next year, said services, aided by HP's EDS acquisition and so up 8% to $8.9 billion, drove the record profits but Hurd-style cost cutting had an awful lot to do with it too. He expects to outperform the market because of HP's scale and range of offerings. But then he also expects to mak... (more)

Top Two Technology Priorities for CIOs in 2011: Cloud & Virtualization

"New infrastructure and operations technologies such as cloud services and virtualization ... were selected by CIOs the most often and are the top-two technologies for 2011," said Mark McDonald, group vice president and head of research for Gartner Executive Programs, as the results were announced of the 2011 CIO Agenda survey by Gartner Executive Programs (EXP). "CIOs and IT have been boxed in between modest budget growth and growing legacy requirements," McDonald continued, noting that "Cloud services and virtualization are well-suited for this budget reality, as they offer similar service levels at lower budget costs." The worldwide CIO survey was conducted by Gartner EXP from September to December 2010 and represents CIO budget plans reported at that time. According to the results, CIOs expect to adopt new cloud services much faster than originally expected. Cur... (more)

i-Technology 2008 Predictions: Where's RIAs, AJAX, SOA and Virtualization Headed in 2008?

2007 was undoubtedly the year of Social Networking, but what of 2008? Will '08 be the year of "Unified Communications" or the year when CMS comes to stand for "Community Management System" - or even "Collaboration Management System"?

i-Technology Blog: Is There Life Beyond Google?

In one of my (several) former professional lives, I used to publish books about the future, including for example the world’s first full-length book about groupware. That was back in 1994 and the book was called Groupware on the 21st Century. If I’d been a clairvoyant I guess I would have called it simply The Future Is Google, but the Web hadn’t yet taken off, let alone Google, Inc. – mainly because Sergey Brin and Larry Page were both still only 21 years old. Fast-forward 12 years and how very much the landscape has changed. It turns out the world was neither flat, not round, but Google-shaped. Because much of what is said and done on the Web is currently said or done via Google. But what comes after Google? Where will the Web, the Internet, the whole nexus of telecommunications, i-Technology, and the quest for a better world, take us? My strong sense is as follows... (more)
